2003 or 2004 bottle. Lovely medium-orange-amber color, with a touch of sediment floating around. Decent white head. Appearance looks great so far. Aroma is citrus hops, grapefruit, orange marmalade and some more fruity spiciness compliments of the hops. Flavor is moderately bitter, but well-balanced (relative to the style of course). Which by the way, how is this an amber ale??? Anyways, it’s got a good dry toffee/caramel like malt that dosent get too sweet but holds the bitterness in check. The finish had plenty of orange zest, grapefruit and a hint of bitter pininess. Body is medium, lively carbonation, hint of thinning and very drinkable. Loved it, actually, but then, I havent had a West Coast hopped beer for a while, so maybe I was just missing them. Thanks so much for the beer, Andre.

Hazy amber colour with very little head. Malty aroma with noticable citrus hops and some faint fruitiness. Flavour is both spicy and citrusy. Crisp finish with decent body.

I was expecting a beer much hoppier (and using NW varieties... it is described as a northwest style beer after all). However, it was good overall, having a quality similar to a slightly watered-down Anchor Steam.

I wasnt too impressed with redhook brewery in making this beer. Amber ale is still a good choice

Not bad stuff but it doesnt have much taste to it. You gotta love ales that still have yeast in the bottom it adds nice flavor to the beer in my opinion

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2004 Bottle pours amber with a medium sized off-white head.   Decent carbonation, good lacing.   Lots of very fine bits floating about, almost appears unfiltered.   Aroma is grain & malts.   Taste is much the same, but with a sweaty sock & ashtray finish.   Definately thin on the palate.   I can see why this is what they offer to BMC drinkers at Redhook.

Bottle: Nice middle amber hue, pours a massive creamy head with good retention and decent Brussels lace. Nose is malt, noticeable hop bouquet, and an off, phenolic wang. Taste is hops to the front, with what the brewer terms a piney character--and they're right about that. But the hops are very vegetal, without subtlety--like a club to the tongue. The brewer used Saaz, Tetnanger, and Hallertauer--a weird combination for a bitter, but there you have it. I find the hops to be very one dimensional, without any interesting character--no fruitiness, no floral esters--just a base bitterness that lasts and lasts on the tongue. I like most hoppy beers, but this beer is just too thin, to simple to deserve much attention.

I bought this in bottle ( six pack) didn't last long as this is a very drinkable beer, the taste is very good , almost fruity..but with unfiltered yeast its almost like a hefe-weisen though I know its isn,t. If you can find it anywere outside Oregon go ahead and buy it a very nice "session" beer.

Aubrey (3453) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - NOV 5, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2011 Cloudy orange. Nice mouthfeel; mild carbonation. Smooth and mellow malt flavors with a milk-like sweetness and hints of cookie dough. Hops are only mildly bitter with herbal aspects. Has some cream ale qualities. Overall, it’s a solid session beer, just not overly exciting.

This one has the hazy, unfiltered appearance, with a golden color. When poured, it did not have much of a head. The aroma and appearance were average, and the flavor had a slight bitterness, but not too hoppy. Not a bad beer, but nothing outstanding either.
